Nous avons souvent parlé dans notre blog de culture libre, communication transparente et de technologie Open Source, et depuis quelques années nous essayons d’appliquer au maximum ces réflexions à notre travail, en partageant des contenus par le biais de notre blog, notre flickr, le compte twitter et d’autres médias.

Aujourd’hui, nous avons le plaisir d’annoncer la publication du premier projet d’architecture entièrement Creative Commons par l’agence espagnole Ecosistema Urbano: il s’agit de l’Air Tree (Arbre d’Air) dessiné pour le pavillon de la ville de Madrid à l’Expo Shanghai 2010.

Cela signifie que désormais n’importe quel architecte, agence d’architecture, mairie ou institution, pourra librement télécharger tout les dessins d’exécutions de l’Arbre d’Air et ensuite modifier le projet, le construire et, bien sur, le revendre.

Voici les liens de téléchargement des dessins d’exécution du projet (en anglais):

Souvent nous avons eu le plaisir de publier des travaux de nos collègues sur ce blog, et aujourd’hui il s’agit des recherches et de projets de Frédéric Mallet, un jeune architecte parisien qui travaille en tant que collaborateur avec des agences telles qu’ Arep, Groupe 6 (et les Ateliers Jean Nouvel par l’intermédiaire d’Arep Ville). Ses travaux se situent dans le domaines des géométries complexes, du scripting architectural et de l’architecture paramétrique.

Nous présentons ici des extraits de son portfolio.

LA SAMARITAINE – ETUDES DE FACADE

Fred explique que “le point de départ de cette étude est un motif géométrique réalisé en pliage illustrant une fleur composée autour d’un pentagone. L’enjeu est alors de créer une composition spatiale autour de ce motif afin de réaliser une peau de verre enveloppant le bâtiment de la Samaritaine.”

Une presentation du travail de Florian Claar :

(…) Between Art, Architecture and Science-Fiction, the art of Florian Claar is noteworthy for the approach of geometrical patterns and continuous surfaces, but moreover for the production’s quality of the pieces. We can notice in each of his works the precision and the highly detailed finition that bring those scultpures to reality from the nano scale to thehuman scale. On his website you can see, for some project, a well documented part on the building process.” (…)

The Skylon was a futuristic-looking, slender, vertical, cigar-shaped steel tensegrity structure located by the Thames in London, that apparently floated above the ground, built in 1951 for the Festival of Britain.
A popular joke of the period was that, like the British economy of 1951, “It had no visible means of support”.

As HDA often works with glass and light steel structures, transparency has always been a central point of interest in our design process.
We share today the paper and its related presentation given by Hugh Dutton on 30th September 2010 in Dusseldorf, at  Engineered Transparency international conference.

We have already mentioned our friend Ion Cuervas Mons in our posts about Creative Commons architecture and parametric conference in Madrid and we would like today to share his new web platform THINKBIG LAB, presented as “a collaborative agency to extend architecture through the network culture. Not only seeking form and space but mixing with service, experience and organizative design. Learning by doing and explaining by the blog.”
